3 hours



You're now looking at 3 hours work.
It's about 30x20cm. And it took me about 3 hours. Kill me!

I am sooooooo dead!

Wish me luck with the other samples!

Samples

This is seriously taking me forever!
I have to finish all samples today so I can work with my womenswear project. And I have 15 more samples to do!

My fabrics are almost finished so I have to go to the fabric store. And they are closed now until 16.00. So I will just keep on doing samples and then go to buy more fabrics.

Pictures later!

Materials



Some sketches for my Materials Technology presentation.

I'm working on the final project for materials. And I'm so stressed!
And I want to watch the Royal wedding so badly, but there is no time for that!

But isn't the dress gorgeous? The dress is made by Alexander McQueen.
I think it's the perfect dress for a Royal wedding.
What do you think?

By the way... The exam ended up with a "fight" between me and the teacher. But in the end I got 25/30, which I'm happy with.
That teacher is really shit. I'm happy that I wont have him anymore!

Semiotics exam


One of the ads that I analyzed in my project

I'm at this moment having the Semiotics exam. I had to print out the presentation earlier this morning. And I skipped the menswear project class.
I'm really hoping for a good grade... Well, at least 25/30!

I will update later and let you know my grade!

Hoffmaestro & Chraa





Hoffmaestro, an amazing band!

I went for their consert yesterday. They are such an amazing band. You have to listen to their songs.
2 hours of jumping and it was probably the best conster I've ever gone to.

Just to clear everything up. It was an AMAZING night!

Versace

I just got back from school, Menswear patternmaking. I'm almost done with my shirt, just a few things left.

I'm packing my luggage.
Tomorrow Sweden! :) And I will be back tuesday next week.

Yesterdays materials technology went well. She liked my things, but she wants me to be slightly more crazy.
The exam is 2 May, and I need to present 18 fabrics. 6 of them with a illustration.

I'm working at Versace today again. I'm going there in a few hours.

I will let you know more later.

No internet

Hey. Sorry for really bad updating.

I've been having problems with my internet. So I haven't been able to update anything.

Escalators





I had problems with my internet yesterday. So I couldn't post this.

I went around in the metro and in stores to take pictures of escalators for my Materials technology project.

My inspiration will be from that.

No stores allowed me to take pictures of the escalators except Bershka. So the pictures above are from there. And I also have some pictures from the metro. But those pictures didn't turn out that good.

I will show you the moodboard as soon as I'm done with it.

Versace Home Event








This is how the party ended up. Amazing furniture and amazing house. Unfortunately I was at the office when Donatella Versace and her daugther arrived to the party. So I never got the chance to meet them.
Anyways. It was fun, and this whole week have been such an experience!

I hope they will keep in touch for other events. I wouldn't mind working with them again.

Home

Yesterday was not as tough as sunday. Most of the rooms at Gianni Versaces house were done. So the only thing we had to do was to check that everything was on place and so steam all beds and pillows.

My "boss" introduced me to everyone as The Queen of making beds. Nice to have a title!

And he also sent me to Versace Home to help the people there with the beds.

And this is the result:



What do you think?
Should I maybe change career and go for this instead?
One of the girls at Versace Home actually thought that I'm working as a interior designer! Hahaha

I really enjoyed working with all the people, and I hope they will keep in touch for the next fairs in Milano.

Tomorrow everning is the Party at Gianni Versaces house. And I will be there! I'm so happy that I got the chance to do all of this!

12 hours





(Because I don't know if I'm allowed to show you pictures of the furnitures, I will only show you some details.)

I'm finally home after working at Versace Home for 12 hours!
I haven't been this tired for a very long time. But I'm not complaining...
This is probably the best experience I've ever had!

So what I did today was that I(me and my friends) had to prepare about 1000 giftbags for the guests. And at about 14.30 we were done with that.

But they needed some help with the styling of the rooms at Gianni Versaces house, were the party is going to be held, so I went there to help out.
I got home at 22.30. I'm soooooooo tired. But it was so much fun! And the funritures are AMAZING! I love it!

And I'm skipping school tomorrow(womenswear project), because they need us at the house tomorrow. I thought that I've done so much during class time, so it wont matter if I miss one class.

And one last thing. I will be at the party on wednesday!!! I'm so happy!
Yaaaaay!

Viking

I went for some shopping this morning and now I'm stitching the shirt for Womens Patternmaking.
So I thought that it would be a good idea to show you my babe!




So this is my sewing machine. A Husqvarna Viking.
I really love it! Before buying this ine I had a Brother machine, but I didn't like it so I bought a new one.

I'm done stitching the shirt for today. And instead I'm stitching my clutches!

Change of plans

I've been thinking a lot about my final outfit that I will stitch for Menswear project. And because I have a lot of zippers in my collection, I also want to stitch something with zippers.

So I talked to my teacher about my outfit and he approved the change. I will change the pants and make my other design to them. They are almost the same, but I will add some zipper details.

Pictures another day!

Layout



I'm trying to decide what layout I should have for the final book. I want something like this. But it's a bit boring. Maybe I should print it on a special paper or maybe just put a background.

By the way, did You notice the hair on the guy? hahaha I hate doing mens hair, so I just photoshoped the hair. Maybe I will add a face too, but make it more cartoonish.

Anyways, I have to do some Semiotics homework.

Secret

Weeeeeeeeeeeell, I went for some shopping earlier today! Guess what?!

Fabrics! Hahaha

Nowadays I go for some shopping in the fabric stores. And I always get home with something!

I tried to focus on fabrics that I need for my project. So I bought my last samples for Womens- and Menswear collection.





I love buying fabrics, and this is what I ended up buying today!

Now: Go for some real shopping! I need summer clothes!
